Default studder at idle on 2003

I have a problem with a 2003 ptc. when at a stop the engine will act like it has a miss. This happens on an unregular basis but is getting more frequent. There are no codes brought up. Can anyone help with this. thanks in advance.

If you have around 30K miles on your PT then it's time to chance plugs and wires (OEM wires are junk) If you have changed plugs already then do the wires. It won't hurt!

Yup, nearly classic signs of plugs/wires.
Best bet: Cranes wires from RaceAndStreet.Com
Plugs from Sparkplugs.com or NAPA.
I just got Champion irridium plugs from Sparkplugs.com.[?]
